Who are some of the athletes that can make an impact this weekend?
- Innovation Academy's Aiden Felty is the No. 1 ranked competitor in the shot put. Felty has been on fire this season. Last week at the Boston Holiday Challenge he tossed the metal ball a PR of 57 feet, 4.75 inches. Previously this season, he had a four-foot best of 55-5 at the Winter Festival on Dec. 16.
- Milton Elise O'Leary is one of the top seeds in the 400m dash. She has an outdoor best of 56.64, which she did to finish second at the All State Meet in June. Last year she also did 57 seconds for her leg on a 4x400m squad on the indoor surface.
- Bridget Mitchell of Milton is entered in the 1,000m and the mile, where she ranks among the best in both events. Mitchell was second in the mile at last year's meet, clocking 5:01. She brings a top time of 4:56.06. In the 1K, Mitchell has a PB of 2:54.31. She could challenge the meet record in that event. in 2016, Leya Salis of Bedford (NH) set the current mark of 2:53.25.
